Before we greet the new year, let’s look back at a few inspiring stories from 2010.

1. The 33 Chilean miners. They exhibited pure grace under pressure, and the day they were rescued, one by one, the world stopped to watch. A true miracle!

2. Jamie Oliver. We’ve always loved him, but we’re even bigger fans now because of his crusade to improve the eating habits of U.S. kids.

3. Joan Benoit Samuelson. At age 53, the winner of the first-ever women’s Olympic marathon in 1984, ran the Chicago Marathon in 2:47:50, just missing a chance to run in the Olympic Trials.

4. Betty White. The comeback kid-at-heart.

5. Temple Grandin. This “weird” kid went on to earn a Ph.D. and become an author, educator and role model for the growing numbers of people with autism and Asperger’s syndrome. And the HBO movie about her won eight Emmy’s!

6. Elizabeth Edwards. She inspired millions with her courageous and graceful cancer battle. Her death earlier this month touched many and underscored the urgent need to find a cure for breast cancer.
